DataPhilly March 2014 - Interactive Data Visualizations

Greetings Dataist!

For our March meetup, Mike Stubna will guide us through his talk "Interactive Data Visualizations: Examples and Creating Your Own". Mike has given a few lightning talks in the past and we are excited for him to get a feature presentation.

After Mike's talk, we will leave room for some volunteers to give lightning talks. This is a great way to share something you've been working on.

Agenda:

6:00 - 6:30: Networking, food

6:30 - 7:30: Interactive Data Visualizations: Examples and Creating Your Own

7:30 - 8:00: Lightning Talks

8:00 - Bar?


 Abstract: Interactive Data Visualizations: Examples and Creating Your Own

An effective data visualization creates a narrative that enables viewers to engage with and make sense of a data set that might otherwise be inscrutable. The web provides a platform for making data visualizations much richer through the use of animations and user interactivity. In this talk I'll present some examples of interactive data visualizations and provide an introduction of how to start making your own using tools such as D3.js.

Bio:

Mike Stubna, PhD is a freelance software developer who builds web applications. Recent projects include apps that collect, aggregate, and analyze operational data and provide users with insights through interactive user interfaces and data visualizations.

    Would love to attend but am pressed for time - what viz techniques are to be presented: in R, in QlikView, in Tableau or other (if so, which)?

    Thanks!

      Hi Mike. For creating visualizations, I'll be focusing on how to use [D3](http://d3js.org­). Thanks!
